Book Bench #2: Mortises, Tenons & a Finishing Fiasco

1346 days ago by spunwood | 2 comments »

M & T With two tenons per leg, I created the dillema of chiseling 8 mortises. I do not yet have sharpening stones and my skills with mortising are a bit lacking, so I decided to simplify and just do two by hand and cut off 6 tenons. This meant alot of sanding to even up the top of the legs so that the bench top would sit evenly and be supported throughout rather than by just one or two of the leg tops. But I am so happy that I kept two mortises. They came out well despite some te...

The Chronicles of Woodworking in a Can #12: It's been a while

1383 days ago by cmckerliesr | 4 comments »

Hey All!Yes, it has been a while since my last blog about working in the can. This one, I hope will be short as there is not a lot that has changed in the can. I have told you all about the tools I have bought and my plans to insulate the can in the hopes of maintaining a bearable work environment. I can tell you that there has been some really HOT days this summer, which literally drove me out of the can. No wind, high humidity on some days, and temps hovering around 100 degree’s pr...

1383 days ago by BertFlores58 | 5 comments »

In saving space, making one piece out of two functions will be a nice way of making tailored furnitures. There are lots of variation, a two piece sets and some are built separately and screwed together. This project started after I built the Agnes’ shelve blogged on first part. The design came in due to the need of storing hutch and a display shelve. There are some challenges such as. 1. The design requirementsI have a very limited space… 40 inches width x 6 1/2 ft high.

Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane

1385 days ago by Rahm_of_the_Woods | 9 comments »

I have recently acquired a Stanley No. 5 Hand Plane. The guy who sold it to me thought it was from the 1950’s and said it belong to his father. I was suspicious of this so I read a type study on Stanley tools. From the specific stamping and style of manufacturing of this specific plane, I believe it to be one of the models produced from 1876-1880. It looks like this plane probably came from my friends great-grandfather, not his father!!! Any idea what this tool might be worth? I know...

Bandsaw Reclamation Project

1398 days ago by Crushgroovin | 8 comments »

I spend a bit of time every day browsing Craigslist for Wood & Tool Bargains. This past Thursday I found an early 80’s 1 3/4hp 14” Jet Bandsaw for $40! I picked it up on Friday! While there is quite a bit of work that needs to be done, I am very excited about this machine. The 1 3/4 hp motor is quite big for this type of machine and works great. The wheels and infastructure are in fantastic shape. It is one heave piece of machine. Most of it is Cast Iron. There ...
